A treat for your pampered canine
When you look into the soulful eyes of your dog as it begs you for a treat, can you resist the temptation to reach out for its favorite tidbit and feed it? Pampering a pet comes naturally to most dog owners yet what most forget is that too much of anything is bad. For instance, dog peanut butter treats are a favorite of most dogs. When chosen with care and given in moderation, they can provide additional nutrition to your pet. Yet when given in excess, it can have an adverse effect on your pet’s health.
Smart pet owners ensure that the tidbits they dole out are not only tasty but also nutritious. Peanut butter consists of vitamins that add luster to your dog’s coat and strengthen its immune system. However, when choosing a peanut butter dog treat, ensure that it does not contain excessive salt or sugar. Natural or organic peanut butter treats are wholesome and delicious.
